Vicki Gunvalson and Brooks Ayers of The Real Housewives of Orange County are still dating despite their scandals, fights and public breakups, a report claims.
While the finale of the Real Housewives of OC reunion saw Brooks clash with Briana, Vicki's daughter, it was taped ... and a lot has changed since.
The couple's alleged breakup came following the release of audio tapes revealing Brooks’ darker side, and on top of a season that was very tumultuous.
Viewers saw businessman Brooks clash with Vicki, her castmates, and her daughter, Briana Wolfsmith-Culberson, who was present at the reunion.
During the show Brooks told Briana, who had accused him of abusing Vicki and others, “You asked me before, ‘Do I love her enough to let her go?’ I do.”
“So we’re not gonna be hearing soon that you guys are back together?” Brianna asked Brooks, who responded, “Not from me, and that’s the truth.”
But it’s not the truth, in the end, as they are very much still dating.
“Vicki is still with Brooks. She just can’t quit him,” an insider said.
“It’s sort of complicated, but despite everything out there proving what a monster he can be, she still does not believe anything bad that's said about him.”
Another source adds that the relationship between them is toxic.
“They are the most dysfunctional couple you could imagine,” the source said of Vicki and Brooks, who is also accused of plotting to KILL their business partner.
As for Vicki being done with the show, as she proclaimed on the reunion, we wouldn't put a lot of stock in that either, even if she said it herself.
Not unlike Brooks, you know she just can't quit it.
